2006 NFL Draft Order

The 2006 NFL Draft will be held in New York City on April 29-30th. The Draft order has been established with the exception of a coin flip for Oakland and San Francisco, AND the outcome of Super Bowl XL between Seattle and Pittsburgh. The Patriots are all set at the 21st position.

NOTES: Draft-order ties: The cumulative record of each team's opponents is used as the tie-breaker. The team with the weaker opponents receives drafting priority. Within a tied segment (teams with same record), teams that are not in the playoffs will be given priority. Teams within a tied segment that are involved in the playoffs will be seeded according to their progress in the playoffs. Teams will not drop out of a tied segment unless they advance to the Super Bowl. The Super Bowl champion will select last (32nd) and the runner-up will select 31st.
